Key West business comes to Lykins-Signtek for their signs

Posted on Thursday, May 18, 2017

The Tunaskin Store, a specialty aquatic sports store on Duval Street in Key West, determined that Lykins-Signtek was the best choice for their new signage. Jim Geiger worked with the client to create two internally illuminated signs: one double-sided canopy hanging sign and one wall sign. The signs are of all-aluminum, welded construction with router-cut lettering and logo and “push-through” acrylic inserts covered with brushed aluminum laminate. When illuminated, the lettering and logo appear to “float” on a halo of light. A big thank you to Mitch Fusek from Tunaskin for bringing this great concept to us!

Deceptively simple sign, multiple steps, beautiful result

We produce and install signs of many types, shapes, and colors every day but sometimes one just stands out. The Landings Yacht, Golf and Tennis Club in Fort Myers has been a loyal customer of Lykins-Signtek for several years and recently ordered a new sign for their Sports Complex. 1.5″ thick high-density urethane (sometimes called signfoam) was CNC routed, masked off and sandblasted with a wood-grain overlay, primed, and hand-painted with 7 enamel colors to achieve the vibrant finish that makes it so appealing. This is a nice example of the products we love to make, take great pride in, and are uniquely positioned to create.
